(Part-2) I am here and you are there And you are here and I am there As each to each the other moves Constant as the murmuring waves Breaking in soliloquies Upon a silent shore, The sea and sand together and apart Yet always touching as you touch my heart- - - Yes, Tom Billsborough's poems will touch your heart.

Only by conscious effort, one can delve deeper into his thoughts. His philosophical bent of mind, deep knowledge and vast reading have gone into the making of this poet, who is kind at heart and a gentleman in the true sense of the term, as far as I understand! I wish him all success in life! (2)

I am at a loss to describe Tom Billsborough. He is an erudite writer and his poetry is layered with meanings and each stroke of his pen reveals some deep, poignant truths about life. In general, his poetry is succinct, pithy and a hard nut to crack.(part-1)

Tom Billsbrough's short poems touch the heart like a teen aged Spanish girl who runs for a kiss but when she is so close, she suddenly stops, she becomes shy, remaining at arms length, so close yet so far, makes the awaited kiss a beauty, a joy for ever. Can I miss this kiss ever, never, never and never!

I read your pieces slowly, Tom, measuring each line against the chasm between what I have known and experienced, and what your poetry reveals to me of the luminous beauty of life in this realm. Your art is layered deep, and each stroke of your brush worth savoring. We dance in the court of masters and knaves, Tom, but you sit on the dais.

Oh, yes, Tom is on my list of favorite poets for a good reason. He is an outstanding poet, he has an exploring, adventurous mind, and he has an incredibly wide range of topics that he very poetically examines. For example: TOBY OR NOT TOBY is a great example of his prowess. At one time I think he wanted to be an archaeologist, maybe unearth the skull of Yorick- -ah, if only there were enough time to pursue all avenues of human endeavor he could wish..To be or not to be. To follow this road or that? I like the way he applied archaeology to the human mind and soul. GLEANINGS FROM THE CUTTING ROOM FLOOR LIQUIDS. Do you love puns? Tom can pun with the best- -I started snickering on line #1, sniggering on line #2, chuckling on line #3, giggling like a mad scientist by line #4, totally sold by line #5. He is now my official go-to poet for having a little pun! NURSERY RHYME. Tom has such a gentle heart and it permeates lovely poems like this one which is pure sweetness. I can see it being read or sang to a sleepy-eyed little girl. I love the repetition in it. Children [and the children inside us adults] thrive on repetition, it is their and our security blanket. A SONG SUBSIDES. Tom is also a maestro! This poem is pure music- it rises and falls, pierces the heart and withdraws to watch the results. It sings! It whispers like a ghost from some unused alley in the cortex to another, reminding us of words that once upon a time spoke to us with violins and flutes and piano and lyrics. HIGHWAY MAINTENANCE. You will love his sense of humor, but he really should post a warning sign about sipping drinks being inadvisable while perusing this humorous poem- - -I got drenched while presented with his definitions of Circular Roads, Cross Roads, and Country Roads. The dry cleaning bill should be arriving shortly. A resounding 10 accompanied by laughter, guffaws, and giggles. ALL OUR YESTERDAYS. This is very philosophical and so incredibly well-written. Like I said, he can handle the most difficult topics for a poem that I have ever heard of and yet pull it off with poetic ease and his own special warmth and gentle intelligence. He asks incredible questions in this quite thought provoking piece. SEA POLLUTION. I was captivated first by the rhythm of the ocean waves swelling and ebbing in this poem- -it was like the poem was breathing. What a fascinating thing to do- I wish I knew the secret to such a piece of poetic magic. This deep motion of the ocean reinforces the message, The ocean is speaking to us through these verses, asking us to stop killing her and through her pollution to kill the rest of this lovely creation. May the world of man hear and heed Tom's words. This is certainly a brilliant write deserving of a thousand million tens. So- - - Jump into his list of poems. You'll be glad you did. He can be warm. He can be funny. He can be intellectually provoking. Tom Billsborough does not fear to take on the Mount Everests of poetry topics or types. Basically because he can handle it all.
